Kippford lodge: Directions and location

Our log cabin, holiday cottage has all you need for a self catering holiday in Scotland. It is located on the edge of the charming Kippford sailing village and only a short walk from Rockcliffe.

Due to its' rural location the garden of Riverview Lodge is visited regularly by red squirrels who keep us amused for hours. The wooded setting also attracts a wide range of garden and woodland birds as well as the occasional fox or badger. Down on the estuary you will see many species of waders, ducks, heron and occasionally the Otters which inhabit the area.

Riverview Lodge occupies an elevated position above Kippford facing SSW and overlooking the Urr Estuary. Situated within Riverview Park, a small residential area extending to some 3 acres with only 5 other chalets, each privately owned, and surrounded by open countryside and farmland. The site was originally part of the grounds of Orchard Knowes, a substantial, granite gentleman's residence which still stands today. From here you can easily walk into the village for a bite to eat or a pint of Solway Gold or Criffel (locally brewed ales).

Leaving Dumfries follow the A711 southwards to Dalbeattie. Continue through Dalbeattie and on leaving the village turn left and take the A710 signposted Colvend Coast for approximately 3 miles. At Barnbarroch, the road to Kippford is clearly sign posted to the right. Once you have taken the road to Kippford continue straight up the hill with a caravan park on your left and golf course on your right. Once over the crest of the hill you take the first turning on your right immediately after the wood and follow the road along the ridge of the hill.

A map and detailed directions will be included in your booking confirmation.

Our holiday accommodation is listed on, which also has a great range of B&Bs. Handy if you want friends to visit for the odd night during your stay at the lodge.

Come stay in our holiday cottage, Kippford, Dumfries and Galloway. A log cabin, self catering cottage in Scotland, set in a wooded setting with balcony, a spectacular sea view and cosy log burning stove. Perfect self catering holiday accommodation for a short break, summer holidays or an adventure family holiday.

With such a wealth of things to do, places to go and sights to see close by,
it's no surprise that Dumfries & Galloway is described as 'Scotland in Miniature'.

So I decided to start a blog about life in and around Kippford and Rockcliffe and all the things to do in the area. The aim is to share this part of the world with others and provide information for anyone thinking of visiting or for those who wanting to plan their stay.
